If you need a reminder of why Joey Jordison was one of the goats, my man went and played Download with Metallica and played Creeping Death better than Lars ever could. pic.twitter.com/Q0XLqukMf7

To say this dude created an entire generation of drummers would be a massive understatement

Absolutely shocked & gutted to hear of the passing of @joeyjordison. In addition to being an incredible drummer, he was always a classy guy. When he heard how much of a fan @MaxPortnoy_ was, he sent to the house a giant box filled with @slipknot swag: shirts, hoodies, backpacks… pic.twitter.com/Ga3xtZk8ec

R.I.P Joey Jordison. Thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends. Thinking about Corey Taylor as well hope he’s doing alright. Joey and Paul are both head banging in heaven as we speak.

What an absolute fucking legend he was
This makes me so sad since I grew up with Slipknot and have always thought he was one of the greatest drummers ever

I don’t have words, to call him an inspiration would be an understatement. Countless hours studying every move behind the kit . I owe so much to Joey Jordison and could never imagine being where I am today without his influence. RIP pic.twitter.com/BAnLHW9Re2

We are saddened by the news of the passing of our dear friend, Joey Jordison.

Sad to hear the passing of Joey Jordison. His drumming in @slipknot inspired me as a teenager, as it did to many other drummers my age. I’d spend a lot of time jamming that first album in the school music room. RIP.

RIP JOEY JORDISON: It's no secret that Slipknot is my fave band on the planet. While this is a tragic day, I will always keep the happier ones in my heart. Here we all are together at the Spectrum in Philly 2001. They were still practically kids and I wasn't much older. Sigh. pic.twitter.com/ni4eJvBUJb

A game changing drummer/musician: Watching #joeyjordison was like seeing a machine with human quality. Only met him a few times, but super down-to Earth/humble. A huge loss. #ripjoeyjordinson pic.twitter.com/JcT3QDJ8dE

When Joey got up onstage to collect his Golden God Award five years ago, you could see what his music and his fans meant to him. One of the most influential metal musicians of this or any generation, and he truly loved what he did. I’m completely shocked. Rest in power, #1. 💔 pic.twitter.com/e8aQMEphiY
